Tried to recipe. I really like it, and so do my coworkers (well, maybe because I am their boss). I like the fact this is a sweet approach to chili. However I only used 1/2 syrup. I also love to kick but will definitely add more jalapeno peppers next time.

Very good chili. I can't handle much heat, so I used poblano peppers instead of jalapeno and halved the chili powder and it was perfect for me. I also only used 2 lbs of ground beef to save $ and it was more than enough meat.

This chili definitely delivers! It is the perfect texture and the perfect blend of sweet and spicy! Made just as is and enjoyed bowl after bowl. I found myself looking forward to getting hungry again just so I could eat another bowl!

I have been using this recipe for 2 years now and it is still a huge hit at my house! My husband LOVES this chilli and I have also made it for my mom and stepdad who were also fans. I omit the peppers (but that is just my personal taste). I think the maple syrup is the secret awesome ingredient in this chili. I will never make another chili again. This is by far my favorite and you wont be sorry trying it. Thanks for the great recipe :)

I made some adjustments to this recipe, but nothing so drastic as to change the integrity of the recipe. First I cut the recipe in half for a 2-person household. Had a can of chili beans instead of kidney beans; used a can of tomatoes with chilis; yellow pepper instead of red. After noting the amount of maple syrup to be added, I knew it would not go over well at our house, no one cares for a sweet soup, so I only used 1/4 cup of syrup. For our personal taste, I had to add a good amount of chili powder and a few dashes of cayenne pepper to compensate for the sweet.

Definitely needs some editing. Beans have no places in chili, and that is way too much maple syrup (and that's a Vermonter's opinion). Add a bit yes, but not that much...
